The Jeep story is a war story. In the late 1930s, when it became obvious that US was eventually going to be pulled into the war in Europe, the various branches of the military started to look at the necessary material preparations involved. In particular, in early 1940, the US Army contacted 134 companies and asked them if they had interest in building a prototype of a small, 4WD reconnaissance car. Only two companies responded to the request; Willys-Overland and The American Bantam Company. The lack of response almost certainly due to the impossible deadline they had placed on the request: a working prototype needed to be delivered within a mere 49 days.

In the early 1950s, Chrysler had a world class performer with its hemispherical V8 engine. The engine displaced 331 cu.in. and proved its race worthiness at automobile racing events worldwide such as Lemans, Dayton, Indianapolis, and others. During these years Chrysler hired a new stylist, Virgil Exner, who redesigned the entire Chrysler and line. Today, Exner is considered the father of the “Forward Look” that distinquished the Chrysler line for the 1955s. His designs were simple and lacked the multiple stripes of chrome that most 1955 model cars were embellished with. The illusion portrayed by the 1995 Chryslers was of “fast, forward movement”.
